This week, we shared that more than 148,000 had enrolled. We are encouraged by the number of Coloradans covered so far, but we have more work to do to ensure all who need coverage by Jan. 1 enroll soon.
Enrollment partners are again hosting both in-person and virtual enrollment events this weekend. Check out the schedule and share this with those who want help enrolling. Our Customer Service Center has also extended its hours to help answer questions.
Thursday was a big push nationally to encourage enrollments. Here in Colorado Gov. Polis declared Dec. 10 as Get Covered Colorado Day, and we had a flurry of social media engagement with several community leaders helping us get the word out, using the hashtag #GetCovered2021. Thanks to all of you who participated.
Many of you have helped us identify system issues that have slowed enrollment partners and some customers down while enrolling this year. We appreciate your patience, and we are continuing to make improvements based on your feedback. This year was impacted by the pandemic in ways we did not expect, as many of you have also had to balance.
We remain busy tending to our system fixes, reminding people about the financial help and enrollment assistance available to them, and the deadlines to enroll. Thank you for continuing to point people our way to get covered.
